Millennials in San Diego signed a petition to ban and replace the American flag, as seen in a video published on Monday.
Mark Dice, a media analyst, started a fake petition that called for the removal of Old Glory and then filmed himself as he walked around San Diego asking young adults to sign it. Even with the approach of Fourth of July weekend, a surprising amount did.
"These millennials have been indoctrinated by their communist college professors, indoctrinated by the liberal media, poisoned by today's pop culture into really being ashamed of America and so afraid to be politically incorrect that … they are now willing to replace, ban the American flag, issue a new flag," Dice said on "Fox and Friends" on Tuesday.
Dice called the results "absolutely astounding," when more people than he expected readily took up the cause of his fake petition.
"I told them it was time to replace it, time to end the era of supposed racism that the American flag stands for, and, quite stunningly, many people signed it."
Dice's idea for the experiment came after he witnessed the controversy that arose over the Confederate flag as well as when any products related to the flag, such as "Dukes of Hazzard" toys, were also banned.
"I wanted to see if these politically correct millennials, basically, would ban the American flag."
Although Dice's proposition was fake, he is not the only one who has requested the removal of the stars and stripes. Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam leader and civil rights activist, spoke in favor of taking down the American flag following the Charleston, S.C., church shooting.
"I don't know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down because we've caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag," said Farrakhan at the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, a little less than a week ago.
During Dice's tour of a "college town in San Diego," only a few people passed up his petition, telling him it was crazy. Dice mentioned that everyone who did stop and sign was "afraid of being labeled politically incorrect" and had been indoctrinated to be ashamed of America.
"Would these people not only agree, but sign their name to a petition to supposedly [remove the flag]?" concluded Dice. "It's stunning. On one level it's, perhaps, a bit humorous, but it's very sad, very scary for the amount of political correctness these young adults ... experience."
